Will Appeal Cases Rowland declared this morning that If the final decision of the County Court should be against his be to the Appellate Division In such cases since the County Court acts hs the appeal court from village and city courts, and to go to the Court of Appeals from the County Court ho must have permission of Judge Close. The latter Intimated this morning that If his decisions should be adverse to Rowland hs would grant such leavo to appeal. The slot machine cases have been centered principally In Tonkers. . Mount Vernon and Port Chester; and have been a source of much litigation since they were Introduc ­ ed Into »,b!s county last winter by the Kurtz Mint Manufacturing Company. Many of the machines were raided and confiscated before the Injunction was obtained and since that time there have been a number of other machines seized by the police who assert they have evi ­ dence that they are being used for gambling. Rowland and the manufacturing company have denied this consist ­ ently and have asserted that when ­ ever they find any operator of the machines allowing them to be used for gambling the company will It ­ self seize the machines. Frank EL Clarke, attorney for the five candy store and lunch wr.gon proprietor* held here on chargee of Illegally operating “slot JUSTICE J. ADDISON YOUNG The Dutcheu County Bar Association has unanimously; endorsed Supreme Court Justice J. Addison Young, of New' Rochelle, for another fourteen-year term.

He is elected by the entire Ninth Judicial Di*-' trict 1 comprising Westchester, Dutchess, Patnam, Orange Aasociat . Orange ition's endorse- comprising ' and Rockland Counties. The Bar j ment came at a special session. Justice Young is a Republican. Attorneys who urged his re-election, however, insisted that it be non-partisan. In about.five years Justice Youngywill have reached the retirement age. / John E. Mack, prominent Democrat, nominated Justice Young for the endorsement. . He referred to the tradition of endorsing Buch justices whose terms expire before they have reached- the retirement ige. “ His personality has bee nso pleasing that it has over- shadowed his ability, ” Mr. Mack said inn ominating Jus ­ tice Young. \He is a splendid lawyer and the sweetness of his disposition and the charity of his actions has en ­ deared him to us aH. It is only mete and just that as be approaches the end of his term, we should show him dor affection and appreciation by giving him our non-partisan support.\ v machines ” told The Daily Press this afternoon that It was unlike ­ ly that he would follow the action* of Former District Attorney Row ­ land and eeek a new trial for the only one of his ^Hleots who was convicted and fined. There was only one conviction i the five cases tried recently In City Court here.\ Mr. Clarke sold. In view of the fact that Judge William Gray announced from the bench that he did not consider the machines gambling devices of themselves, I do not think that an appeal would be worthwhile. You can gamble with anything, no matter bow harmless may be and we are not partic ­ ularly perturbed over the convic ­ tion of the one client-\ The proprietor who was found guUty and fined $10 was James Masterson. who operates a candy and cigar store on Mamaroncck avenue.

Three citizens who obta warrants agalnat three of the filers at the airport fdr \raising dust\ were forced to see the hearing ad ­ journed until July 22 when men were arraigned yesterday be ­ fore Justice of the Peace Arthur Pletschker. Daniel J. Barrett, although not summoned, also appeared to swer the charges of maintaining a nuisance and sold he would refend the airport against the charges but that meantime something would be done about the dust. Paul C. Lehr, C. F. Stroh and Harry H. Rosche. whoee he have been dirtied, they allegi _ dust from the air field, thrown up by the whirring propellers, swore to the warrants yesterday. They were served on three pilots employed by the Barrett Company and the men were ordered to ap ­ pear at the hearing, which Other residents are reported to have approached Barrett and asked that oil be spread on the field to Neighbors of the field complain that they have to keep doors and windows closed because of the dust through which the American lers, en route from Old Orchard, le, to Rome, were expected us this afternoon. \ Await Word New York, July 9 (UP) — W1 re ­ ar stations along the v lanllc seaboard stood by today awaiting word of the whereabouts of the American monoplane Path ­ finder, presumably nearing coast of Spain In Its attempted trans-Atlantic flight from Old Or ­ chard.

Edwards last night that he was half trousers out of the complaint, how do you plead In respect to the shirt T\ asked Judge Edwards. Forgelman pleaded runty . War Veterans Entertained “ You gave my- wife a busy evening,\ writes T. O. B., “ when she read about how to be happy though prosperous, she tore up to tbe attic, and unearthed-oil the long-sleeved nlght-gownk.lhat used to belong to Oreat-Aunt Ellas Bhe ripped all the hems out of her dresses, threw away all my cigarettes, for, of course, she's still old-fashioned enough not to buy her own. and. after having r»s*gned from her three clubs, wrote to her four sisters Inviting their children to come to live w)th us. I thought I could forestall that by pleading with her for her slaters' happi ­ ness. but she was firm. She said her slaters couldn't be happy, anyhow, since each of them had but one child, so somebody might as wall gat tbe good out of the Infants, eoUcotlysly .... Besides, she pointed out triumphantly, it's only In Westchester that the possession of one single child Is apt to be so ruinous to peace of mind. Her slaters live In New York .... So, If you meet my Ethel trolling along Mamaroncck Avenue with an uneven hem ­ line — my Ethel with tho hemline, of course, and not Mamaroneck Avenue — you'll realize that your words fell on fertile soil. “ But oh. lady. If you think were any happier, won't you come over — why, you MUST come over — and see my Ethel In one of Aunt Eliza's nighties'\ a fine now to be aet aside by the de ­ cision of Judge Close this morning. \Not A Violation Claljn? The rourt decision Seflf not be of ­ ficially Issued, said Judge Close un ­ til after he has heard next Tues ­ day afternoon a slmlllar appeal on a Yonkers ease, much akin to the Port Chester cases. According to Rowland, who told the Judge he would present at that Ume preced ­ ents from the higher courts to show that ths machines wrre latlun of the gambling. skirt. \HypocriteI\ leered the city-editor ifl me as I came into his office. \Go upstair* and put your sleeves on' Hero! the Luckies aren't In that drawer. They're In the other side . . . and. oh say.\ he called out after me as I retired In triumph and smoke, \how many children Is your daughter ’ \ But of course such comjient*. loudly though they have been cheered In this part of tbe county and frequently as they have been reiterated over In New Rochelle— for this Is being written In White Plains — are all wrong. It has been my Impression that the lovely ladle# of Westchester are striving after perfection, with the route passing through the beauty parlors straight to the golf links, the bathing beach and the club porch. I suggested a devtaUon by way of the nursery — but the rule was for the ladles who patronise theae devious pleasure-path* because life affords them nothing else to take up moat of their time. As I pointed out to my city editor, etepplng back to his office to do mo, the hours, I spend on the golf links are nil and th* scenery I view as I lounge In my club chair Is tbe perfectly blank while wall opposite my typewriter — a wall exquisitely ornamented with a red and yellow calendar from the Corn Exchange Bank. That brief excursion Into personal matters Is Inserted morely because It touches on ths lives or many women In Westchester who work. I do not Imply that they are any happier because they work — but I don't think they'd be any happier If they stopped. Moreover; my code for the happiness of Westchester's women was baaed on th# principle* laid down long ago by the eminent Mr Shaw when he sold. \Those who can. do; those who can't, teach.\ and he might have added, \Those who like to talk, write columns.\ Nevertheless, there was. I protest, some Justification In th* things I said. Recently, when I had been dtnsuaelng tho matter with a charming young matron who has one child, she said. ~I'd have more children If it didn't takn so much time. I'd like a son — but It's such a bother \ Her attitude toward her progeny reminded me mightily of the lady in Noel Coward's delightful comedy. “ These Charming People, ” a couple of years ago. (I think that waa the name of lt-1 The la<fe said, \I bate passion. It's so untidy.\ That lady — the one who can't be bothered having a son — has plenty of money. Bhe lives In' Westchester — nothing unusual about the combination of facts. I Imagine. But a far more Intelligent woman than she, who also has one child, hurled a different declaration In m/ face Lhe minute I ap ­ peared at her office door. Bhe doesn't find children a bother. Incidentally what she sold was. \We can't -have more children. They oost too much.\ I remember commenting on that fact about a year ago In this column — whereupon a professional gentlsman. appearing at my office door, sold to me, \It's funny you young people In West ­ chester can't afford a few hundred dollars to have children. You can often spend that much not to have them.\ But as I told him politely, he probably was much more familiar with that phase of tho situation than I waa or am. When I talked of unhappiness among Westchester's women. I meant the great army of unemployed. Not thoee who are looking for Jobe but those who aren't looking for them. Those who want something to do but don't know It; those who need some ­ thing to do and can't find It. i It would be Interesting to discover ths unknowable statistic* on how many Westchsater people could afford children and won't have them and bow many want them and can't afford them. Natural discretion suggests that families be limited when ex ­ perience has proven that limited income* can meet only limited demands. In many Westchester cases, ,pf course, ths demands that drain ths lncamss are artificial demon/. «. superimposed by an artificial society. It's merely foolish to hear people say they can't afford children while at the same Ume they Indulge their own. taste for luxuries and selfish pleasures. But on the other hand there are hundreds of yoqng couples In this county who Ur« HJthln an Income that simply cannot stand ths drain of hospital expenses, nurses and the possibilities of prolonged Illness that any baby may bring. It's all highly Involved, of course, but pos ­ sibly some day th* state may be bright enough to find a solu ­ tion — then I wonder what will happen lr. Westchester.
